That is the young writer’s dilemma as I see it.  Not just his, but all our problems, is to save mankind from being desouled as the stallion or boar or bull is gelded;  to save the individual from anonymity before it is too late and humanity has vanished from the animal called man.  And who better to save man’s humanity than the writer, the poet, the artist, since who should fear the loss of it more since the humanity of man is the artist’s life’s blood.
